If you grew up in a music family, you are likely to be musician too, at some point considering to take on music career just like your parent.
Over the last 20 years, the music industry has seen sons follow careers of their fathers. Actor and retired rapper, Will Smith with kids Willow and Jaden Smith are both in the music industry, also the late TX Moshi William and TX Moshi Jr, Nguza Viking and Papii Kocha, Zahir Ali Zorro and Banana Zorro, Master P and Lil Romeo, Reverend Run (from Run DMC) and son Diggy Simmons and Ice Cube and son OMG are a few parent to child inspirations in music.

But Tanzanian singer, Banana Zorro says he does not want to dictate his kids’ future, he want to let them decide what they want to do in their life but not necessarily pushing them into music.
The father of two sons, Randy and Jermaine, praised his sons’ singing skills.

Banana admits there is a lot of musicians in his house, kids are always singing, dancing and playing instruments but he is not sure if his kids want to be musicians like him.
“I just want my kids to get best education, I don’t want them to have instagram accounts at this time of their age,” Banana told Azania Post in an interview.
He added: “I don’t want them to have fame and attention when they are young because I have been through that when my first single came out, I was in secondary school and I almost lost it,” the ‘Niko Radhi’ singer gives a testimony here.”
